Hi, I'm a noob in ECL.
Recently I downloaded the new free Microsoft compiler (VC8) and was trying to
use it to build ECL-0.9i. After few days of hard work I managed to build ECL
without any fatal error (a lot of warnings though).
After the build I examined the "msvc" folder and found that ecl.lib is
missing, and ecl.dll is basically empty. Then when I did the "nmake
flatinstall", the process stopped complaining about the missing ecl.lib file.
I just wondering if anyone can somehow show me the direction to solve this.
The followings are the major problems I encountered when I was trying to build
ECL-0.9i, and what I did to "fix" them.
1. The "strnlen():dllimport function not allowed" problem, as stated in the
previous posts. I just commented out the code.
2. "Missing makeinfo.exe", I downloaded various makeinfo.exe from the internet
but they are all too old (ie. < version 4.2). I ended up using the
makeinfo.exe from the cygwin package (it's version 4.8).
I'm not to sure if it is these "fixes" that results the missing ecl.lib

Just wanted to fix the wrong wording. What I meant was the nmake flatinstall
stopped. The error message was that it cannot find ecl.lib file.
